[IDD #DNR-528937]: LDM Software Update

Hi Massoud,

> It turns out that our Aerospace Automation Lab at NASA Ames has had the LDM

> that time.

Very good.  The person(s) who setup that system should be able to help you
out while you setup yours.

> You can verify our host name, which is vv1.arc.nasa.gov.

DNS looks good for this machine:

% nslookup vv1.arc.nasa.gov
Server:  localhost

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    vv1.arc.nasa.gov

% nslookup
Server:  localhost

Name:    vv1.arc.nasa.gov

> I would
> like to continue using this host name and add UNIWISC, NNEXRAD, FNEXRAD, and
> NCEP model data's (e.g., GFS-CONUS_80km and NAM_CONUS_12km) if possible.

OK, this is easily doable.

> Which configuration files do I need to edit in order
> to obtain them into our system? For example, would I edit pqact.conf by
> adding more lines so I can get the data-products that I need?

Data request entries are made in ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf.  Entries for processing
data that is received are made in ~ldm/etc/pqact.conf.  The online LDM training
workshop materials should help you understand the kinds of configurations you
will need to make.

As soon as youget your LDM built and installed, please check to make sure that
you can get the data you are interested in from the UCSD IDD relay, 
This is most easily done as follows:

<as 'ldm'>
cd ~ldm

ldmping aeolus.ucsd.edu

notifyme -vxl- -f NNEXRAD -o 3600 -h aeolus.ucsd.edu


The 'ldmping' will tell you if you can contact the UCSD machine and if its LDM 
running.  If this goes well, the 'notifyme' will inform you of what products the
UCSD machine is receiving on the feed (-f <feed name>) you are asking about.

> Thanks for your time.

No worries.
